    DHCP issues on network connection

    *Dual Boot WIN8.1 with Kali*

    No DHCP offers received (when /etc/networks/interfaces is : auto eth0; iface eth0 inet dhcp
    I have tried both managed and un-managed through network manager
    I have also tried static IP: auto eth0; iface eth0 inet static; address; netmask; gateway; network; broadcast
    I have done: route add default gw and verified with route -n

    It will either not work statically nor with DHCP.

    I have also tried commenting out the " r34323..." or whatever line in the dhclient.conf as well tried the send vendor-class-indentifier "MSFT 5.0".

    My home router is set up for DHCP, but will work if I do static. My last open IP is .20. I prefer to have DHCP working so that when I travel, I dont always have to reassign a new IP every time.


    I have tred multiple drivers ( Realtek for my GA-990FXA-UD3) I did a msinfo32.exe while on win to verify what version I needed. I tried 2 drivers dwnld from Realtek for Linux for my version. The first didn't take and the second established a wired connection (not notification only) I was still unable to receive any dhcp offers or establish a static connection. I have also tried the settings in my router.

    Does anyone have this MB and fixed this issue?

    Thanks for the help

  3. Your Network is probably not using the DHCP protocol.
